Ingredients

  • 6 pieces string cheese
  • 1 large eggs beaten
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese the powdered kind in a can
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt coarse Kosher salt works best

Instructions

  • Cut string cheese in half crosswise.
  • Beat 1 egg in small bowl. Set aside.
  • Place almond flour, Parmesan cheese, coconut flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt in zipper sandwich bag. Shake bag to blend.
  • Dip each piece of mozzarella into the beaten egg and then coat by shaking in the sandwich bag. Freeze for at least one hour.
  • Heat oil in small frying pan to at least half inch high. Temperature of oil should be about 325-375°F. Higher temperatures tend to brown too quickly with cheese melting out. Air frying works too using a temperature of about 370 to 400°F for about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Cook each coated piece of mozzarella in the hot oil until browned on all sides. Enjoy!

Notes

Makes 1 dozen mini sticks. A serving is 3 sticks.
Salt can be adjusted to taste. I tried ¼ teaspoon at first, but made another batch with ½ teaspoon and it tasted much better.
For a double coating: Coat and freeze, then take them out and coat them and freeze them again for at least 30 minutes before frying.
